between president obama and the press corps comes not only budget cuts or immigration or guns but over golf. an outing with tiger woods sparks complaints that the president is stiffing the white house press, even as he talks to local tv types and hangs out on google. >> this is not about a trivial issue like a golf game. we don't really care about the president's score. we care about access to the president of the united states, whether as a democrat or a republican. >> does the press have a case or does this amount to whining? for years now we've heard david axelrod and robert gibbs defend their boss. >> well, of course, the pamphlet reflects the ideas that the president is advanced throughout this campaign about where we need to go as a country building on the progress that we made. >> i think you're going to see an exceptionally strong debate performance tonight from the president. i think you'll see somebody who will be strong and passionate and energetic. >> now, they're resurfacing as msnbc commentators. is the network becoming an obama administration in exile. >>> journalists we
. >> jon: on fox news watch, did you see president obama with ti n golfing ce. and can this paper afford to lose its public advocates? we say no. >> on the panel this week, writer and fox news contributor, judy miller. radio talk show host, monica crowley. jim pinkerton, contributing editor in the american conservative magazine and daily beast columnist kirsten powers. i'm jon scott, fox news watch is on right now. hello again, normally we would uld have been video here in a clip of president obama hanging with his golfing buddy tiger woods over the weekend. but we don't have those pictures because the white house press corps was locked out, access denied. now, is that a big deal? well, maybe. especially when candidate obama made this promise. >> what i want to do is maintain this virtual community that we've built and i want people to keep challenging me and pressing me, and i want to create a white house that is more transparent and accountable than any government we've seen before. >> jon: well, the obama white house has been overactive in cutting off access, controlling the message a
a special message from first lady michelle obama that we would like to share. >> hello everyone. i am pleased to kick off this series d telling the lives of america's first ladies. in the coming weeks you will have the chance to learn about the stories, achievements, and legacy of these truly a remarkable women. as you watch i am sure you will begin to see why i am so honored and humbled to follow in their footsteps. working on causes ranging from the trustee to women's rights to environmental stewardship, each of these would then left their own indelible stamp on the white house and on our nation's history. like them i found that this role offers an extraordinary opportunity to give back and make a real and lasting difference in people's lives. for me that has meant help our kids lead healthier lives, working to get our military families the benefits and support they earn, opening the white house to as many people as possible, and encouraging all of our young people to achieve every one of their dreams. no matter what causes we take on as first ladies we have all shared the singular
up again. >> president obama used his bully pulpit this week to call on congress to avoid, get this, sequestration. that's washington nomenclature for automatic spending cuts due to go into effect on march 1, next friday. on that date, both military and domestic programs will feel the impact of the monumental $85 billion cuts slated for this year, 2013, alone. not only does the president condemn the cuts, but his administration is also sounding the alarm. first, the secretary of state. >> but in these days of the looming budget sequester that everyone actually wants to avoid, or most, we can't be strong in the world unless we are strong at home. my credibility as a diplomat, working to help other countries create order is strongest when america at least puts its own fiscal house in order, and that has to be now. >> next, the secretary of defense. >> members of congress need to understand that they were elected to protect the public, not to hurt the public. and i hope they will remember that as they hopefully work towards a resolution of this issue. >> the president and his cabinet a
obama said high gas prices are a rsult of world wide demand and not much to do with supply as it does with demand jacking up the prices. if there is more wouldn't that pull down the prices. >> i like it because it adds to stability. i don't like buying oil from nezuela and companies in the middle east that are funding tirce terse to kill us. if we move from unstable sources to stable source us is good even if the price doesn't change a penny. >> there is also the jobs that are creted on this. >> and there could be environmental degradation. he is right to be concerned. but if we rearrange the energy supply we could have cliner and cheaper and step one is open the pipe line and end the corn ethnoil boondoingle . frac more gas and phase out coal. you would have cleaner oil and cheaper energy. >> that is all of the above. the president claims he's for all above and look at epa stopping fracing and stopping a lot of ways we get oil. who knows, he may listen to the protestors. >> what is interesting, there is it a way to get around the water aquarks afers and if we don't take it here, chin
obama wants to pin sequestration on the republicans. speaker boehner calls sequestration, as you saw, quote unquote, the president's sequester. is he right? >> yes, he is right, in that it was proposed by the president and by his folks when they had the budget impasse, as a way of i say, putting pressure on both sides at some point to deal with it. but our government is so dysfunctional we are at this particular stage now. the problem now is, where do we go from here in terms of this is going to undermine the confidence of the country in the government, and its ability to address problems. it is going to undermine the confidence of business who wants to invest. this is just another disgrace in terms of the way the american government works. >> it's an exaggeration. >> no, i don't think it is. i think it is a major issue. this money will be cut one way or the other out of the budget but it is going to tell everybody something about our inability to deal with a most obvious problem. >> how should it be cut? >> i think to some extent across the board but i do think it was in fairness, o

obama seems stressed out about sequestration. >> tom: well, he is kidding some people i guarantee you. and he thinks there is something up with the drone program. >> tom: strange, like the pause because it is strange. thanks to everybody that contacted the show this week. keep your comments coming in. we're open for business 24/7. check out facebook page. you can follow me on twitter. by the way, on the facebook page there is a little app if you want to listen the radio show, it's right there. all the ways to contact us is the main website which is my name, tomsullivan.com. we are many stations around the country and like i said. you can click the button on my website. it's every weekday from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. eastern. we'll have another great tv show for you next week on fox business. in the meantime, i hope to hear you on the radio. lou: good evening, everybody the day can be described as quiet from washington to the middle east, where as two days for market selloffs brought i told you sos from some wall street gurus. today's triple digit rally in the dow was unobserved by those who
evening. president obama has said he would be in contact with members of congress, but according to my sources here at the white house and on the hill there have been no top-level discussions today and there is no resolution in sight. at the governors association meeting in washington, bipartisan frustration. >> the uncertainty of sequestration is really harming our states and national economy. >> there can't be any question. this is something nobody wants. right? it's not a balanced, thoughtful compromise. >> reporter: hope for a deal is fading but the president said today there is still time. >> these cuts don't have to happen. congress can turn them off any time with just a little compromise. >> reporter: recent polls show a majority of americans support the president's plan to avert the sequester through new taxes and spending cuts. but house republicans say they just agreed to raise taxes and this deal should be solely based on slashing spending. >> house republicans have already passed two bills to replace the president's sequester. so the question is, why won't he work with us?
government's coming in to do it anyway. it's not like you block obama care from taking place in your neil: you might like like it, but get used to it. what do you say? >> oh, i understand. here's your lemon, how sweet can you make it? that's what we are forced with. to reduce 30% increase on the policy coming up for families, for us, we had to go in and manipulate deductibles, manipulate what's available. we even had to take -- remove ourselves from the local hospital chapes because they pay -- they charge more than the insurance policy is willing to pay for so, i mean, this -- obamacare is a book of rules, but nobody knows how to live within them, and, you know, the states are forced with it, no doubt about it, but it's not going to be free, folks. neil: the state ship left the planet. thank you, all, very much. oscar for best actor goes to? look at that, washington. they act like the economy thrives, but news today, it could be diving. automatic cuts around the corner, but the white house says it is calm. the guy at the receiving end of the blow saying democrats are as calm as the union
. tonight, you'll hear from them and what they would say to president obama. the iranian government allowing us into tehran, just three days now until those crucial talks. as we explored the city all this week, we have been struck by the young voices here. walking past a school, we noticed that the students are speaking english. we entered the schoolyard where they take lessons, this mother told us, her son will need english when she grew up. but we wondered if she thinks it would be any different. do you hope for your son a better relationship between iran and america? she tells me "god willing, that will happen." as classes let out, the students swarm our cameras. they have never met a reporter from america. do you think iran and america will get along? >> maybe. >> maybe. >> maybe. >> reporter: do you hope for it? >> yes. >> yes. >> reporter: how would you describe america in one word? >> very good country. >> reporter: very good country? >> powerful. >> reporter: powerful. they are young, but this boy is not naive. he tells me that he's aware of the economic sanctions. led by the u.s. >>
in any number of ways. obama administration now predicting some difficult circumstances, transportation secretary ray lahood saying air traffic controllers could be cut causing flight delays and the secretary of education saying the nation's school children will suffer because of strained finances in the state. listen.... >> means a lot more children will not get the kinds of services they need as many as 40,000 teachers could lose their jobs. >> reporter: meantime, plenty of political finger pointing. >> the reason there is no agreement is because there is no leadership from the president on actually recognizing what the problem is. >> why is it that we can't come to the table and agree what cuts need to happen? that is what we should be doing. we shouldn't be passing the blame to the executive branch or saying this is obama's sequester >> reporter: both sides are pessimistic about changes to the agreement. >> heather: with five days left, you can understand why. what are the nation's governors saying? >> they had a meeting over the wined and some went on the sunday talk shows to talk
it's raining. >>> still ahead, michelle obama as you have never seen her before the video that has gone viral after jimmy fallon's appearance. >>> and what job she has her eye on after her husband's final term in the white house. >>> 13 years ago, san jose voter as proved a bonds measure to build six new libraries and expand 14 existing branches. one of the libraries was finally open to the public. the city didn't have the money to operate and maintain it until now. hundreds came out for the baskin library ribbon cutting. community members see it as a hard-fought long awaited opening. >> we have been waiting so long for the library and gym to open. it is a wonderful location, so, yeah, we're really excited. >> three other new libraries have been moth balled. city leaders say there still isn't enough money to operate them. >>> people braved the cold in costumes to take the dip in icy water. >> more than 1,000 people took part in the polar plunge in support of the special olympics. the funds raised help provide one full season of sports instruction and competition for special olympic
the campaign and how they dealt the defeat and what governor romney thinks of president obama's second term agenda. it's an exclusive interview. that is it for today. have a great week. we'll see you next fox news sunday. >>> this week on the editorial report. president obama turns up the heat on republicans warning of deish consequences if those march 1st spending cuts kick in. john born says the sequester wasn't his idea but should he try to stop it. plus new york city's murder rate hit a 50 year low but the policy is still under fire. to stop and frisk be soon a thing of the past? and the return of the hollywood black list. campaign against zero dark 30. >> paul: welcome, i'm paul gigot. with days to go president obama turned up the heat on republicans this week saying they would be to blame if across the board spending cuts take affect march 1st. appearing on police officers and firefighters and other first responders, he claimed the consequences of such cuts would be dire. >> people will lose their jobs. it will jeopardize our military readiness. it will eviscerate investments and thou
and obama thinks he has them on the ropes and republicans cannot seem to get themselves together. >> we just heard dr. paul say it was the president's idea. wasn't it? >> who cares? it's a bad idea on both sides. it's the blame game. it is the president's responsibility far more than anyone else, particularly a second term president who just won reelection. it's his responsibility to rise above this nonsense. he's not doing it. >> ought to show you something. this was a cover during the mid- 1990's and the speaker of the house complained that he had to exit air force one by the rear door, but that's not the point. the public complained and blamed president clinton, but after a while, his numbers went up and gingrich himself has said that the budget standoff with the single most avoidable mistake as speaker. you can never be sure how these things are going to play. >> the gingrich example is certainly instructive. he was the man of the year for "time" and he plummeted to 16% favorable. that is just a little bit south of donald trump. those are really bad numbers. he never fully recovered from
that it was? >> actually no. i thought barack obama was going to win. if you look at the trajectory, it's been growing for two years. and they've always used the far right to do it. they get them all excited over cultural issues. >> it used to be it was a fair game. >> there's not enough of them. >> for every african-american vote, for example, or latino vote more aptly put, you were going to lose a more conservative vote from the southwest. that hasn't been happening. the white has been up a bit and the african-american votes zoomed. >> yeah. part of the problem is, number one, they lost the cities, including the urban city. they're losing urban white voters, and they're losing young voters and part of the problem is them. the messaging they use to gin up their base turns off obviously younger people, turns off women, turns off minorities. this time they really got minorities excited about voting. there was already loyalty to barack obama among african americans, but when you did that, that made that vote solidified, determined to come out as if it was 2008. >> this is the problem they have.
the system. we run a risk in deciding if the obama administration has been tempted to say we don't want to be the hegemonic provider of security at these public goods to the world. let this be another big player at the u.n., but another belly up to the bar player at the u.n. in turtle bay. let's let the collector worry about it. they will worry about it and waste damaging to us. the most important thing is that the u.s. doesn't understand a guarantee system as an act or from the outside, the consequences going to be a scramble among scared and worried racing great powers who we all should fear we come to in south china sea. post rss if you were the last two u.s. ambassadors to the u.n. >> host: the last two ambassadors. well, here's the thing. john bolton was excoriated as someone who despise the u.n. that you could chop off the top seven or 10 stories that no one would ever notice there at its headquarters. >> host: do you agree with that statement? >> guest: i agree about 80%. as somebody said, i've actually found found it quite conciliatory and the message is american liberals need t
% blame obama. he gets relatively off on this thing. >> he gets relatively on it at the moment, in comparison with the republicans. barcia the republicans are the ones who have been talking about spending cuts and so they're going to be blamed if the manned tore spending cuts are implemented. if the economy really starts to decline, as howard said, if the markets turn on america which is definitely a possibility and markets are watching america's political body at the moment thinking my goodness, if they can't get their house in order now, then what are they going to do when they have to do long-term things? chris: that's what i say. >> at that point the president could suffer. chris: i sometimes sympathize with countries like greece in the old days. hell with it, these guys can't get the job done. bring in the colonelless. find somebody else. it's that bad. here's the numbers. 76% of the country do agree with the president now. it should be a combination of tax increases, revenue increases, and tax reform, whatever and spending cuts. the republicans basically say all cuts, no
, if these sequester cuts kick in. take a look: >> president barack obama: are republicans in congress willing to let the cuts fall on our kids' schools and mental health care to protect tax loopholes for corporate jet owners? >> chris: senator coburn, is the president exaggerating the impact of these cuts? >> absolutely. and, you see the typical set up the strawman. the federal government is twice the size it was 11 years ago. we are spending almost $4,000, per person, per year, coming out of the federal government. $12,000. the average family is on the hook for unfunded liabilities, in excess of 3/4 of a million dollars, per family. and, what and wsequestration, i is a terrible way to cut spending but not to cut 2.5% over the total budget over a year when it is twice the size it was ten years ago? give me a break. the american people, we see all the claims, what a tragedy it is going to be. the great example is, is if the secretary of transportation, can assure us all the planes will be safe, then the department of homeland security can assure us that we can get through the airports on time. they h
doctors expected to retire in the next five years. obama-care could add -- it would only worsen in the years ahead. from arizona, welcome. caller: thank you. i would like to mention some key points in governing -- say, the democratic governing versus republican governing. i like to take a few minutes to get everything together and have an understanding as to what governing means, what government tries to do and the obstructions that the republicans have caused four at least 33 years to try and -- let me start out by saying we need to be led in the country, and if we elect somebody to lead us, please let him lead us. if our air elected representatives cannot lead us than we have approximately over 310 million systems of government, which is bought of government in the last 30 years. host: we do really want to focus on the issue of medicaid expansion. there is this. maria is joining us from west hill, new jersey. the morning. caller: think medicaid could be center for our citizens. i feel that the 33 million illegals are going to be a -- are going to be given a pat to citizenships
of the obama administration which did, in fact, raise the deficit. we all know that deficits are bad things. bigger deaf sets are -- deficits are bad, other things equal, but other things were not remotely close, and there was a cogent rationale for a stimulus package of that size and maybe even for a bigger one. the biggest message of the book to me as the author is this paradox that there were massive government interventions induced and caused by the fact that the private markets ran amok. the private markets that went off the track, the government came in not perfectly, but pretty effectively to try to put things back on track. and yet at the end of the day we witnessed -- and you've all witnessed it as i have -- this quite sharp backlash against, quote, big government in the united states. now, americans have never liked big government. you call anything big government, and americans will be against it reflexively. but there was a reason for the government interventions. it was a market failure in the financial world the likes of which we've not seen since the 1930s. and if we had done
this is obama's sequester. the republicans supported this. i supported it. we need to come together and make the right cuts and frankly ash carter at the department of defense said even if we did some kind of flexibility move at the 11th hour it is too little too late in terms of what they have in motion at the department of defense. we need to come together -- >> chris: but you senator mccaskill -- >> i want to sum jump it. i cannot support this. >> chris: let me ask senator mccaskill this question. you are not going to get an agreement on the cuts in the next five days. the see he questions terrorist attack is going to go through. why not give agency heads more flexibility to decide i'm going to cut more of this and less of that? >> i think right now the way this is set up, there are going to be cuts a lot of places and there will be some flexibility. i think we are going to look at a number of things this week. but it doesn't take away the real need we have and i know tom coburn agrees with me on this. we have a much bigger problem down the line in terms of reducing our debt than just wha
money under obama care, but should they be forced to cover husbands and wives alike? this is what you dweeted me, the spouse is not covered otherwise and family too, but steve disagrees saying companies showrm be forced to cover anybody. we asked the questions on our website, 27% said yes and 73% said no. tonight, i agree with mayor bloomberg, can you believe i'm saying this? the man who banned soda, salt, and anything fun in new york city is in the right this time. bloomberg view stowed what could have been the most aggressive measure to have employers ignore unemployed job seers. it bans ads say unemployed need not apply, but this one lt'ses rejected applicants sue employers. all this does is produce more lawsuits, not more jobs. you can't make blanket laws like this. that's my who twenties more. that's all for tonight's willis report. thank you for joining us. have a great night. see you back here monday. ♪ all right. that will do it.

facts. and both sides are doing this, both sides refusing to cut. look, according to president obama's own budget, we're going to run trillion dollar deficits ten years from now. and ten years and about 48 trillion dollars over the next ten years, we're trying to cut 1 trillion. instead of 40 cents of every dollar we're asking our government to borrow 38 cents a dollar. if a company can't cut 2%, not much less the entire 40% that we're borrowing, something's wrong. this is fear mongering at its worst. >> well, jehmu, do we have reason to be afraid? are you scared? >> yes. and we absolutely have reason to be afraid, brenda. how do you spell bad news for the company? s-e- s-e-q-u-... you get the point, sequester. and at the new year when we were looking at the fiscal cliff, but is there really a difference between the exorcist and the shining? the fear is there. of course we need cuts, you need it in stages. you don't do it when the economy is fragile. you do it when the recovery is stronger. and these across the board cuts, bad news. >> and tobin, i wouldn't call them cuts, they're tr
or eliminate the opportunity for them to guide planes in and out of airports. >> reporter: both president obama and members of congress have not sat down for a last-minute negotiation that could avert this. each side says the other is playing politics with the issue. >> so why is it that we can't come to the table and agree what cuts need to happen? that's what we should be doing. we shouldn't be passing the blame to the executive branch or saying this is obam's sequester. >> reporter: the pentagon would take a major hit, forcing a reduction in training that could mean longer tours of duty for troops in afghanistan. senator john mccain says we should listen to the warnings of the generals. >> if we don't believe our military leaders, who in the world do we believe? i think that what we are doing now to the men and women who are serving is unconscionable because they deserve a predictable life in the military. >> reporter: the nation's governors are worried about what would happen in their own state fist those budget cuts take effect. listen. >> all of this have a real concern about the impact i
